Partner Countries

Partner Country Coordinators (PCCs) are key to the work of the PPD Africa Regional Office. PCCs are designated by the PPD Board Member in each member country.

PCCs are technical staff in government ministries—they are tasked with a number of functions key to the operations of PPD and South-South collaboration. PCCs raise funds for South-South collaborations between member countries; assist in the planning and implementing of exchanges; evaluate and disseminate the results of exchanges and coordinating activities; and provide leadership for South-South initiatives within their countries. PCCs also facilitate the flow of information with the PPD Secretariat and also liaise closely with UN agencies (particularly UNFPA) on population and RH within their countries.
